Back in the old days, before USB keys, I created (or got my techie friend to!) a mapped network drive on my PC running Win XP so as to access the hard drive on my laptop running Win Me. This was to transfer files between the two computers, etc.
Now, I just use USB keys. The irritating "problem" I have is that when I plug a USB key into my PC it come up in My Computer under the disconnected network drive (G:). I can re-assign the letter of the drive to, say, H:, but this is only a temporary fix as the next time the computer is booted up and the USB key is plugged in the problem re-occurs. Note that my PC and laptop are no longer connected by cross-over cable - in fact, I now use the ethernet connection on my PC to connect to my wireless router.
Hence, my question: how do I permanently delete the mapped network drive? That is, DELETE the mapped drive, as it is already disconnected and yet the problem occurs. I have tried using "net use G: / delete" at the command prompt but this has not worked.
Thanks in advance for your help!
